Breast MRI Intensive Training Course


Welcome to Breast-MRI Intensive Training which has been established to provide the best state-of-the-art intensive training for radiologists who are utilising Breast MRI.

The course that has been developed is unique in the Asia-Pacific region as we limit the number of attendees so that each individual has their own imaging workstation throughout the entire course.

The 2-day course has been designed so that each attendee can improve their interpret skills by reviewing up to 100 complete cases in exactly the same way they would in their daily practice. Each case has all the accompanying complementary images as well as notes.

To ensure that this is a highly interactive, intensive and innovative course all five of the international and Australian faculty, as well as technical support representatives, are on-site to provide one-on-one assistance as needed. As we specifically limit the number of attendees we are able to answer questions as they arise to ensure that everyone will come away from the course with the confidence and experience that be put to use immediately in their daily practice.

While the major feature of the course is the opportunity for participants to interpret cases at their own pace, there are also lectures from internationally renowned breast MRI experts which cover best practices in pathology and image-guided techniques. There are extensive opportunities for debates, discussions with faculty and with your colleagues.

The course is designed to give practical experience to radiologists who are already involved in, or will soon be involved in, breast MRI and we presume a level of familiarity with the techniques. With 100 cases and a Masterclass for those who are more experienced, the course replicates a high-volume practice. For radiologists who are unfamiliar with breast MRI there are a number of other more didactic courses that may be appropriate to attend before attending one of our Breast-MRI Intensive Training course.

At the conclusion of this conference, participants will be able to:

  1. Learn imaging protocols and techniques to produce high quality breast MR images in keeping with current recommended standards
  2. Accurately and efficiently interpret and report on breast MRI exams in accordance with the ACR BI-RADS® MRI module
  3. Use breast MRI guided biopsy tools effectively and safely
  4. Gain an understanding of the use of CAD in reporting Breast MRI

I invite you to register for either of the above courses for an intensive breast MRI experience.
